Sketch Frenzy Friday 9/5/14 Wishing You Happiness

Hello, everyone!  I hope your day is a good one!
I have enjoyed seeing all the cards created by friends using the sketch from the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog.  So I am hoping to be invited to be on the design team! 
What I like about the sketches is that it's not just one person's ideas, but everyone on the design team gets a few turns to put up their own sketches.  So there's lots of variety.  Seeing the cards the team comes up with is inspiring because of the variety on the one sketch that is posted every Friday.

The past Sketch Frenzy Friday's sketch was created by Patrice Herrera.  (Thanks, virtual roomie!)  It's basically for a clean & simple card, but my card probably doesn't fall into that category!

 Here's my card based on the sketch:

I am not sure if you can see all the shininess, because it's a cloudy day for my picture taking.  I used Stampin' Up's Brushed Silver Cardstock, Silver Foil Sheets, Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum and 1/8" Silver Ribbon.  These items really made the wedding card look elegant!

And the inside:

 A couple of things to note about this card:  I used the circle vellum instead of the hearts because it's easier to tape down behind the bigger circles.  The cross was embossed with white embossing powder, very carefully sponged with Smoky Slate ink, then ink was wiped off of the embossed image.
Here's a close up of the cross:

I believe my customer will be very satisfied with this card!
I'm adding a link of this post to the Sketch Frenzy Friday page using the InLinkz at the bottom of the post.  Won't you join me?  Challenge yourself to make a Clean & Simple card based on the sketch or see how many embellishments you can add to the sketch!
